Here is a fun and super easy way to celebrate the coming of Spring!
What you'll need:
-1 bag Chow Mein Noodles (Crispy)
-1 bag Butterscotch chocolate chips
- Robin Egg Candy (I used Cadbury-mini-eggs)
Optional - (I added 1/2 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips, for a darker color)
The how to:
-Pour butterscotch chips into a microwave safe bowl. Microwave chocolate 1-2 minutes, checking every 30 seconds until melted!
-Pour the whole bag of Chow Mein Noodles into the melted chocolate and mix until evenly coated.
-In a greased muffin pan spoon chocolate covered noodles into each muffin cup and shape as a nest, leaving a little indentation in the middle.
-Place the candy robin eggs into center of nest. Let the chocolate harden.
-Use a knife to pop nest out of the muffin pan.
-You can place each nest in a paper muffin liner if desired.
If you don't want to use a muffin pan you can can shape each nest on wax paper. This method creates more of a realistic look and it allows you to make the nest as large or as small as you want.
I wanted to take these to some friends so I filled the bottom of a plastic cup
(Short & wide, Elegant style cup) with some candy, then dropped my cute paper lined nest into the cup and wrapped it with plastic wrap and ribbon.
